What is Assistant Computer Control?


AssistantComputerControl, or ACC for short, is a piece of free open source software that lets you do things on your computer using your Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

The application collaborates with IFTTT and Dropbox (or other cloud services) to connect your assistant with your computer. This software only works for Windows.

What can it do?


ACC combines your Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa assistants and your computer - allowing you to do all sorts of things on your computer, using your voice!

AssistantComputerControl lets you customize the software to the max.

You decide what triggers you want your assistant to react to, you decide what response the assistant should give you (if any).


You can use 3 cloud services with ACC

Click the cloud service that you chose when you installed ACC, or the one you would like to use to see applets for the right service.
